All WWE Pay Per Views to be Dual Branded

All WWE Pay Per Views to be Dual Branded

Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin will challenge for the WWE Championship at Fastlane in four weeks' time, after defeating Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens on SmackDown.

The 'Yep!' Movement would pay for their actions, as Shane O Mac stipulated that victory for Corbin and/or Ziggler would see them added to Fastlane's triple-threat match between Zayn, Owens and WWE Champion AJ Styles, and that any interference from Owens or Zayn would cost them their place in the match. Styles will now be defending his WWE Championship in a Fatal 5-Way Match on March 11 against Owens, Zayn, Corbin and Ziggler. In 2018, these top four fighters will compete against each other in "Fastlane" where the victor of this match will defend his title on Wrestlemania 31 main event.

Dolph Ziggler def. Sami Zayn via pinfall: Prior to the main event, Ziggler cut a backstage promo where he proclaimed he wants the one accolade that's eluded him in his career - main-eventing WrestleMania.

So, to recap real quick: Before we get to WrestleMania on April 8, we'll have a seven-man main event on the Raw side of the company at Elimination Chamber and now a five-man main event here for the blue brand for Fastlane.

With a Natural Selection finisher, Charlotte Flair had taken down two-thirds of the Riott Squad. Next week's 6 women tag match will just be more of the same.


Bobby Roode was looking to keep a tradition alive when he revived the United States Open Challenge on Smackdown LIVE, but the champ got something else instead: Chaos. The champion got his wish as Orton made his way to the ring, but there was ultimately no title match.

Tensions boiled over when Orton nailed Mahal's sidekick Sunil with an RKO, before eating a wicked haymaker from Roode. It appears as though they planned fewer pay-per-views for 2018 and it's getting harder and harder to fill a full pay-per-view event with the storylines in just one brand let alone sell tickets. While many fans may take issue with Jinder Mahal's presence here, I like the idea of saving a one on one bout between Roode and Orton until WrestleMania, and having Jinder chasing the U.S. title makes a lot of sense.

Dolph Ziggler had a great match on SmackDown, and it's nice to see him going after the WWE title once again but are we just supposed to forget about him dropping the U.S. title and leaving in December?.

Shelton Benjamin and Chad Gable are all about taking the art of tag team wrestling seriously.

But Big E and Kofi Kingston would have the last laugh, putting down Gable with Midnight Hour. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I have very high hopes for the upcoming program featuring these two teams.
